FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE/NUTRITION HEALTH COACHING
The objective of Functional Medicine is to identify and understand the root cause of health conditions. Functional Medicine dives deep and asks the question, why? Functional Medicine Certified Health Coaches are trained to work independently and to assist practitioners in caring for individuals with chronic diseases through diet and lifestyle changes. They are trained in basic principles of functional medicine, functional nutrition, and positive psychology; including developing plans and lifestyle changes, coaching, and stress reduction techniques.
Autism Spectrum behaviors may seem to be one size fits all in the sense that all individuals are destined to have the same health, social and physical struggles, though this is not the case. By incorporating functional medicine practices, as well as nutrition we can go straight to the source and not only improve wellness but also take huge steps forward in boosting behavior and quality of life.
